Guest designer - Pool piggies by Larissa Walgemoed (Part 1)

August 03, 2017


Hi everyone, it is Larissa with a new post on the Gerda Steiner designs blog. So happy to be here today! Today I am showing you a card that I made with the cute Pool piggies! Aren't these piggies very cute?


My card is a spinnercard. I stamped the air matress and the reading piggy from the set
Pool piggies from Gerda Steiner designs twice and then I coloured all 4 images with my Polychromos pencils. The air matress had almost the same shape on both sides, so I could stick the images together on both back sides of the image. I adhered some fishing thread between the both images. I have adhered a piggy on each side of the matress images. On a aheet of white cardstock I stamped a stripey background with the Pinstripe from My favorite things with real red ink from Stampin up. I die-cut a hole and a square from the striped paper with the Crea-nestlies XXL 33 & 34 from Crealies. I used the circle dies again to cut a circle frame from red cardstock and to cut a aperture in the front panel of a red card. I adhered the fishing thread above and below the aperture and then I adhered the striped paper and the circle frame then on the front of the card. Now you can spin the image and if you let the image go, it will spin really hard.


Now you can turn the image a couple of times and when you let the image ago, it will spin really hard.



Inside the card I adhered a square shape of watercolor paper. I made a wavy background on it with Derwent inktense blocks. I stamped a couple of fish from the stampset Lucky duck from Gerda Steiner designs and coloured those with my Polychromos pencils. I adhered them on the background, so it just looks like the piggy is floating in a sea. ;)

It's a fairly simple card really but I think it makes the image the absolute focal point of the card. 


First I coloured the background with some distress ink "Festive berries" and added some "Black soot" around the edges. I spritzed it with water for a...
